2011 automotive watch list

2011 Nissan LEAF

With the economy recovering, 2011 looks to be a much better year. Especially for the auto industry. Sales are starting to pick up, and you'll notice a certain panache in the new vehicles heading our way.

There are several that have caught my eye already, so I figured I'd give you a sneak peak at my top 10 faves. From entry-level to electrifying, there's a lot to look out for in 2011!

  • The new Kia Optima is going to be pushing its way into this list before long. Its just too bad that it gets the flappy paddle shifters instead of a real manual option.

    the kia optima did cross my mind, and i think you're right ... it'll probably end up on this list before long.

  • In reply to ScottM:

    No mention of the 2011 Mustang?
    Or is the newly-repowered Pony "old news"? (Oxymoron, anyone?)

  • In reply to ScottM:

    HA! You removed my comments criticizing your previous typos and then fixed them. In the process, you changed the "Cadillac CTA" to the "Cadilla CTS!" Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy....

  • In reply to ScottM:

    I'm now aware of these cars as I should be.

  • In reply to ScottM:

    What's a "Cadilla"?

  • In reply to ScottM:

    Hmmmm.... you write "Nissan Leaf This novel new vehicle from Nissan is the first mass-produced 100-percent electric, zero-emission vehicle."

    Zero Emission? Uh-uh. Where will the Leaf get its battery recharged? Oh yes, from an electrical source of some type that does emit pollutants.

    So, while its concept is great and its execution may be really good, let's stop repeating the "zero emissions" b.s. that Nissan is putting out.
